Dog Lovers Festival Melbourne 2023
Fri 13 Oct 2023 - Sun 15 Oct 2023
No Hairs Ink
Celebrating all things related to dogs and dog owners, the Dog Lovers Show is an annual event at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Boasting a variety of dog breeds and activities, attractions, and exhibitors related to dogs, the show is a true dog enthusiast's haven selling every kit and caboodle from car seats, premium ready made meals (think Lean Cuisine for dogs) to Vogue style portraits. For diehard dog fans, you can also get a tattoo of man’s best friend to cement the relationship from VC Ink Tattoo Studio.
Although we were disappointed about leaving our dogs at home, there were plenty of unique breeds including the internet’s favourite Doge (Shiba Inu), Samoyed and Weimaraner breeds to keep us engaged and fur-filled.
Some of our favourite exhibitors:

Attendees can expect to see various dog breeds, watch K-9 dog agility demonstrations, learn about dog training and care from the likes of Luke Hura, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and Dr Katrina Warren, and browse what feels like hundreds of stalls spruiking dog-related products, from food and accessories to grooming and healthcare services. There are dozens of giveaways (think dog treats) and games like kibble toss for the chance to win an instant prize.
The Dog Lovers Show is a popular event for dog lovers to come together, share their passion for dogs, and gather valuable information on how to care for their pets from celebrity vets and animal trainers. There are also a number of Instagram-worthy installations and face painting for kids of all ages.
Starstruck meeting Bluey and Bingo, everyone’s favourite Heeler pups!
